While a traditionally gun freindly state (as are most southern states) NC Has been swinging to the left in recent years, due in part to the influx of out of state people to work in the financial insustry in Charlotte. Governor Bev Purdue is an obvious example. I suspect some of this is a clash of "new vs old".
If you think it is bad now, wait until this summer when the DNC holds their Nuremburg Rally, I mean their national convention.
Move to Oklahoma.

Federal 42 Sec 1983 Deprivation of civil rights under color of law is against the individual not the municipality; then just for s___s and grins you can run on up the ladder; 1985, Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights against every supervisory officer in the dept; 1986 Neglect to Prevent Interference with Civil Rights against city/county attorney, prosecutor, city/county councilmen, mayor.......
Again these are against the individuals not the tax payers.

Again these are against the individuals not the tax payers. Oh and then there is 1988, attorneys fees just for a final kick.
Try to enforce it when they control the court all sounds good but real world no go every fine in Wisconsin has been paid by the tax payer and the few pay outs barely covered court cost.
2. Patrolmen aren't paid to investigate, they're paid to enforce laws, or chase suspects. It's the job of detectives to investigate crimes.
One of the reasons I am against open carry (for me -others are free to make their own choices) is that it is quite possible for someone who hates guns and/or gun carriers to make a false report about someone open carrying and claim they took some action they did not (like brandishing a firearm). Such a report would amount to at least reasonable suspicion for the police to detain the open carrier, and things can go south from there.
You only missed one point.....Forsyth County is trying to circumvent Federal law with local ordinances which is in itself illegal. The NC NRA is just waiting for a case in this matter and they are ready to come forward with legal and monetary assistance. Tanglewood is really strange...They serve booze one day a year at the steeplechase and in the golf pro shop lounge. So the county is using that as a cover all for no ccw. Can't wait until they charge someone......Hello NRA...glad to have you aboard...........
well well well. Isn't this interesting.
I started a thread a few days ago about why I am against OC. This thread seems to bolster my reasoning and the points I presented. I was admonished by some that this sort of thing rarely happens if ever.
LE oft does NOT the law. Case in point. I am a amateur radio operator. During a traffic stop I was cited for "illegal possession of a police scanner". Black letter law allows me to have a scanner because amateur radio operators are exempt from the law prohibiting citizens having police scanners in their car.
The cop did not know the law. I still had to go to court....hire a attorney...take time off from work etc..
What punishment did the jack booted thug who wrote the citation receive? Zero.
OC? I don't need nor want the hassle nor the possibility of appearing on LE radar.
If anyone has the time...money and where with all to deal with this, then by all means go ahead and OC. As an average joe, I don,t have any option but to stay off their radar screens.
What exactly do they think will happen if someone is carrying in a park ? LMAO. It's pure stupidity. The cities tried that here, and the state legislature went right back and amended the law to say .... no cities can prohibit conceal carry in an public areas, parks, walk-ways, parking lots, etc. and went right down the list ...... LOL. They modified it so that the only place no - one could carry , is "IF " it was a building and the entrances were posted with the approved AG signage. Cities whined a LOT. And what happened ? Nothing .... people carried in parks and absolutely NOTHING has ever happened.
Now, the state has it that the cities can only regulate the manner of open carry (eg holster, etc) .... not prohibit it ..... and they are making the same stupid arguments they did before. The anti-s, just don't want to face the facts, the record --- which speaks for itself... they just don't like guns and don't want them.
